·         Make sure your community has proper outdoor lighting so drivers can see costumes in the dark.

·         If there’s no lighting, provide children a reflective trick or treat bag, flashlight, or glow stick.

·         Get with neighbors and trick or treat in a group. Kids younger than 13 should be with an adult. Older kids should go in a group as well.

·         Teach kids how to properly cross the street; cross at crosswalks and intersections, stop at street corners, and look both ways before crossing.

·         Tell kids to only accept treats at the door. Tell them to never enter a home or car.
